As flight controller of Cox Bank International Airport (retired), I enjoyed one of his inaugural flights, when his intended co–pilot, who was a pilot with Dan Air, on seeing the micro light, lost his nerve and forfeited his perch to me.
We did a triangular trip, Woore – Wybunbury – Coxbank, Runway One!
I remember visiting Hope Hospital, Salford on his return from France with his first broken neck (skiing). Second time in North Staffs when his reserve fuel line failed, crashing nearby.
I remember skating with him on the Shroppie near his shop on decidedly thin ice by his shop.
Some man, some neck!
Dear Editor, I would just like to thank you for all your help with the clarification on the NHS and non NHS available travel vaccinations, offered at the Audlem Medical Practice.
Looking forward to this!
Anyone got a contact number for Pete, the tree surgeon from Church View, who helps out with the village xmas trees. – got a couple of trees that need his attention!

Thanks DaveR! Posting this message on chatbox must have been a good luck charm as my Mother has now found the property she wanted and is looking forward to living in Audlem soon.
Normally I have ceased filling the bird feeder by this time of the year as there is plenty of insect life around for their chicks to eat. However, due to the cold weather this spring, insects are in very short supply and the bird feeder is being emptied at an amazing rate, far quicker than in the depths of winter as the birds seek to keep their young fed.
If we want to see plentiful birds in our gardens next year we should assist this years hatch by feeding now, otherwise, if this cold spell continues, they may not make it through in any great numbers.
There is a two bed detached bungalow at 15 Moorsfield Avenue that still has a 'For Sale' sign in the front garden
A good time had by all this weekend, but spare a thought for the Charity Stalls on the playing field.These were not well supported compared with other years & consequently less money raised for these very good causes. On leaving the field at 4pm on Monday, to find a packed Lord Combermere which is great but leaves the stalls out in the cold somewhat.
The webteam thank MrsT for her query about vaccinations and is seeking a response for you.
Editor's comment: Response now received – see News story Friday morning 29th May.
Hi I was just wondering if any one can tell me if they have been refused a holiday vaccination which is free on the NHS, at the Audlem Medical Practice, with an explanation of it is unfortunately due to resources even though it WAS advertised as a service on the Medical Practice's own website at the time of enquiry?
The 2 other local surgery's Nantwich & Wrenbury offer free vaccinations that are covered by the NHS, for some reason as an Audlem resident we are penalised. However we are offered a service, that would mean travelling to Chester or Liverpool with a cost of around £50 for the vaccination and additional travel costs. I have heard of a few people with the same gripe
Looks like good old rural Audlem gets the rough end of the stick once again!
Editor's comment: The answer to your query is being published as a news story on Friday morning, 29th May, with a full response from Audlem Medical Practice.
Totally agree with greenlaneman, fabulous from start to finish, well done also to all the bar staff in the three pubs, they all worked so hard, looking forward to next years festival already
What a fantastic bank holiday musical weekend. A HUGE thank you to all organisers and to those who took part
My mother has sold her own house and is looking to move to Audlem ( she is a cash buyer and is not in a chain ) We have registered with all the local estate agents but there is nothing suitable on the market at present – ideally a bungalow within walking distance of the village. If anyone knows of this type of property soon to come on the market could you please let me know ? Many thanks.
Went to the carnival at 6pm for it to have packed up! Very disappointed.
Meet Audlem car park – (Audlem Ramblers Society) takes a figure of eight walk passing near to the site of Bellaport Hall and Bellaport Old Hall. Approximately 5 miles.
The walk takes you over some of the beautiful ancient landscape surrounding Norton–In–Hales. You will climb up to near where Bellaport Hall once stood, overlooking parts of Cheshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire.
Length of walk approximately 5 miles with about 8 stiles and should take about two hours. The walk is relatively flat with no sharp inclines, however weather permitting, there are wonderful views.
Last recce there were no cattle, mainly grassland and a few tracks and lanes therefore ok to take dogs.
Tony Crowther will be leading the walk.
Start time 9.30am on Saturday 30th May, from Audlem Car Park, parking at Hinds Head, finish back at Hinds Head for drinks/lunch.
Methodist Chapel – All residents are invited to call in at the Methodist Chapel on Saturday May 30th, anytime between 10.30 and 1pm. Refreshments will be available, together with the opportunity to discuss the Draft Neighbourhood Plan.
Overwater Marina – The annual Audlem RNLI Festival at Overwater Marina – details in News section. Saturday evening events start at 6.00pm
